Optimising processes in the pharmaceutical production facility
I am currently on my second rotation with the graduate program. I am working with the Instrumentation & Control Engineering team in the Reactor Operations department of Nuclear Operations. My duties include collating information and documenting calculations for the operational guidelines for the reactor.
I work on maintenance and upgrades to reactor systems - on a day to day basis this means reviewing performance, responding to plant performance issues, and planning maintenance strategies. Soon I am transitioning into a role as Project Engineer for some major system upgrades in the Reactor - this will involve tooling design, testing in a mock-up, procurement of new systems, planning of installation and supervision of Operators.
Day-to-day I am constantly learning and being challenged with new technical tasks as well as concepts that are new to me.
Engineering to deliver a new radio-pharmaceutical production plant, overseeing contractors, reviewing work, ensuring compliance.
As an environmental researcher, no day is ever the same. Days may include reading papers, conducting fieldwork or spending hours in the lab preparing and analysing samples.
My main role is to engage local students and teachers in STEM through shows, workshops and other events. I am trusted with a lot of responsibility, but also have the support around me that I need.
My role is to be a project engineer, running projects that arise around site from start to finish. My day-to-day responsibilities can vary greatly, from planning projects, designing processes and equipment, managing people and constantly learning about the different work and research areas the company is involved with.
I have had a really wide range of opportunities. I have managed science based events, written education programs, developed workshops and coordinated major outreach events.
